Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC ?

2 SATA Drives will not burn DVD-R but will burn...

\015 Comier957,\015\012Thank you for your attempt to help me with my problem. You offered a solution and asked me to let you know. I attempted to let you know what I had done but do not know if you received my reply. Thought I knew how to send it but it did not post under my original question. .\015\012Anyway, I had one SATA burner in port 1 and one SATA burner in port 3. Since I posted the question I traded one SATA burner for a Samsung IDE burner giving me 1 SATA Burner and 2 IDE Burners. Each of them seems to work as it should. Sorry I "jumped the gun" and made the trade. You most likely could have solved my issue.\015\012Thanks\015
